A MORAY PARK will be become a shining beacon for around 10,000 people this week when the inaugural ‘Colours of Cluny’ event takes place in Forres.

Colours of Cluny will provide a uniquely lit route that takes visitors through Grant Park and up Cluny Hill – along the way showing off Nelson’s Tower in the best possible light. Complemented by music, each evening from November 9 until November 20 there will be an evening walk to remember.

Born from the highly successful ‘Enchanted Forest’ at Faskally Wood near Pitlochry, the Colours of Cluny aims to provide a similar experience for the people of Moray.

Behind the event is local butcher Graham Murdoch, in particular when he learned that Kate Booney, who is the lighting designer for the Enchanted Forest, actually hails from Forres.

Looking forward to the event is regional MSP David Stewart, who said: “This is yet another massive event and attraction organised by a strong Forres volunteer base, which is aimed at attracting visitors and locals alike to the area.

“I understand that 10,000 tickets are expected to be sold – which frankly is a massive amount and the boost that this event and the other similar type events organised in the Forres area this year, bring to the local economy, is tremendous. I wish all concerned the very best.”
